Homemade Sweet Chili Sauce Recipe
Buying the bottled Sweet Chili Sauce used for marination and glazing is good. But making your own sauce with fresh ingredients is even better. Here is my Sweet Chili Sauce recipe:
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup of water
1/2 cup of sugar
2 fresh hot peppers minced
2 cloves fresh garlic minced
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cornstarch
In a saucepan, combine the water, vinegar and sugar over medium heat.
Mix together until well blended. Bring to a boil until the sugar dissolves.
Add the hot pepper, garlic and salt and stir until it all boils for about 1 min.
Add the cornstarch and continue to boil until everything has blended in.
Allow this to cool before you use it for a marinade.
If you are going to use this sauce for a barbecue glaze, cooling is not necessary.
This makes about 1/2 cup of sauce.
This sauce is great over BBQ'd or baked chicken and as a dipping sauce for lumpia (Asian springrolls).
Until next time....
